in crisis. detroit, michigan, once the nation's richest city per capita, once the nation's fifth largest city, once a symbol of u.s. innovation, industry and success, is in such dire straits that the city is in need of an intervention. on tuesday afternoon, a panel of state-appointed experts released their findings that the city of detroit faces quote, a financial emergency, one which they say the city is not equipped to address. as a result, detroit may soon become the largest american municipality in history to file for bankruptcy. the decision may be left to just one person. if michigan governor rick snider decides to act on the panel's report and appoint an emergency financial manager, a decision expected to be made in the coming week. key findings of the six-person panel include that the detroit police department has more than 2,000 employees but no accurate information on how they are deployed. that the city's long-term liabilities in 2012 grew beyond $14 billion and that the city officials violated accounting and budgeting rules. detroit is on the verge of collapse but if you're t

[laughter] [laughter] and now -- [laughter] [cheers and applause] and now, it's about to get better, thanks to libertarian real estate developer and doubly-named porn star rod lockwood who plans to buy the island from detroit and convert it into an independent commonwealth "founded on the principles of limited government, where residents would not pay any corporate or income taxes." finally, a consequence-free paradise for rich americans, other than the rest of america. [laughter] this haven for the wealthy is the realization of a dream from lockwood's self-published novel, also called "belle isle," in the tradition of other fictional tax shelters likes "narnia" and "where the wild things hide their assets." [laughter] and this plan doesn't just he
